“Excellent service, lovely rooms”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I spent a couple of nights in this small beach hotel in November 2013; the customer service was the best I've had in Uganda. The staff are really friendly and enthusiastic and the rooms are beautifully designed (ask for one facing the beach if you want to avoid a view of a timber yard!). The food was okay but very limited in the hotel; I discovered only on leaving that this is to some extent deliberate - they want to direct people to the pizza restaurant they own on the beach (about 2 mins walk) rather than keep a big kitchen at the hotel. Overall, though, it's a good place to chill out.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the beach for the best views

We spent the last day of our holiday at this hotel. It's only been going for a couple of months and we really enjoyed the hospitality. It has a very cosy atmosphere and it's. Good place to relax. Food and service are excellent and we were impressed. The hotel is only 10 mins from the airport. It was difficult to find it at first. There needs to be a sign on the main road.

This establishment has been opened a couple of months and it's a good place to stay. It's near the beach and has a very cosy atmosphere. Great food and service. We spent a very enjoyable few hours there before catching the plane home so it good to relax there rather than hang about at the airport.

I've stayed two times at this nice new beach hotel, a couple of nights every time passing through Entebbe. The first impression is the inviting outdoor enviroment with it's bar and pool area. The rooms are also tastefully decorated with a comfortable bed, very clean and with a nice view over Lake Victoria. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful and the stay gets personal and pleasant. Internet works fine and I got a perfect service with my laundry. Breakfast is outstanding with something for everybody, the other meals were also excellent and I had all meals at the hotel. Actually I didn't leave the hotel at all. I highly recommend this nice beach hotel, next time I hope I can stay for a longer time.

A very beautiful place on the shores of Lake Victoria. The ambience is very conducive for relaxing and for a family holiday. The staff are very polite and serve you with a smile and the rooms are very spacious and well aerated. It is definitely worth visiting.

Just like their branch in Jinja, the Entebbe 2 Friends Beach Hotel was very pleasant with an excellent service. Staff and management very friendly and would go out of their way to help you out and provide the best service. Rooms are very tidy, clean and normally quiet so I was able to have a decent sleep. As they say in their moto, I arrived as a guest and left as a friend! Definitely recommended to anyone looking for a decent place to stay in Entebbe.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor looking towards the lake have an amazing view!
